Architecture and museums in Sardinia
The typical architecture of Sardinia has its own lines, which are distinguished from the rest of the peninsula.
The traditional residential architecture is still evident in the folds of the north island, examples of rural architecture linearly developed on one level, in the high two-store homes in mountain areas, built of stone and wood, and courtyard houses built with “làdiri”(clay brick mixed with straw) of the Campidano plain.
Castles, churches, monuments and buildings destined to the most diverse uses, express the island's identity through their style and signs of influences over the centuries by the conquerors.
Museums and other exhibition spaces are interesting for understanding the cultural and natural complexity of the island. These are almost always linked to their geographical location, thereby instruments of knowledge from which to draw useful keys to interpret the peculiarities of this land.
